Our first month on One Planet Living, our month of making do is in full swing, and it is so inspiring hearing all about the small steps that people in the Facebook group are taking every day, and all the inventive ways they are coming up to Make Do with the stuff they already have, I love it!
Lots of people have chosen this month to Make Do with the food they already have. So they have been shopping their cupboards, raiding their freezers, making inventories of all those forgotten tins and packets, and then coming up with meal plans that make best use of the food already in the house, before hitting the shops.
Some people are shopping less and eating up the stuff in the freezer, and others are just shopping for a very few staples each week (fresh milk, fruit and veg etc) and making up the rest from their store cupboards, and then there are others who are simply paying closer attention to their leftovers and pledging to cut out food waste.
However you choose to go about to go about it, making the most of our food is a really powerful and important thing to do.
